SNG & Partners welcomes Sharad Joshi, former Co-Founding Partner of Anoma Legal, as a Partner in the Corporate Practice. Sharad will be operating out of the Mumbai Office of the firm and brings with him a decade-and-a-half of experience in the Infrastructure Projects and Project Finance, with a focus on Energy and Transportation sectors. He holds an LL.M. and an LL.B. from Mumbai University and is qualified with the Bar Council of Maharashtra & Goa since November 2006.
With this, the total count of the Partners at the firm stands at 24. Recently, Gaurav Sahay joined SNG & Partners as a Partner in Technology Practice in the firm’s Bangalore office.
Welcoming Sharad to the firm, Senior Partner & Head of Corporate Practice, Amit Aggarwal, stated, “At SNG & Partners, a lot of our focus is on augmenting our Infrastructure and EPC Practices – right from due diligence, negotiation, creation of local permissible structures and other project-related documents, drafting of definitive documents relevant to the completion of the project, and seeing it through to financial closure. We are doing some path-breaking work in this area and Sharad’s onboarding has given the much-needed impetus to the firm. He has done a lot of advisory work in this area right from Contracts to Bid Processes and Drafting & Negotiation of onshore and offshore supply, civil and services agreements.”
Sharad Joshi, the incoming Partner, added, “SNG & Partners has been representing major Infrastructure & project finance players in the country and has developed niche expertise in handling assignments in the areas of renewable energy, Aviation, Roads, Bridges, Toll and Public Private Partnership projects, etc. The repertoire of my work in the renewable energy space will add value to firm’s Infrastructure finance practice. With my experience of not only advising numerous solar power producers on power purchase, transmission and distribution agreements, but also advising several Indian lenders in the financing of renewable energy projects, the firm will be able to provide end-to-end solutions in this sector.”
The addition of Sharad to the SNG & Partners team is a significant step towards strengthening the firm’s EPC, Projects and Project Finance practice, particularly in the large-scale and complex infrastructure projects.
